Washington, D.C. Ranks No.1 Most Moved-To City in 2018

Washington, D.C. is more than a political epicenter. This city is also packed with history, diversity, and culture. These are just a few of the reasons D.C. ranks as the most moved-to city this year, according to Updater’s Moving Trend Report 2018. The majority of people moving to D.C. are job-first movers, so they secure employment prior to moving. With everything the city has to offer, it’s easy to see why over 36% of these job-first movers intend to stay.

Did someone say culture? The Smithsonian Institution consists of 17 museums and galleries, plus one zoo, and they are all completely free. Washington D.C. is also known for its Ethiopian food, bottomless brunches, and happy hours. Want to get outdoors? Visitors and residents can enjoy the National Cherry Blossom Festival every spring, in addition to the numerous bike trails around the city.

Washington D.C. has a population over 6 million, an average household income of $82,372, and a median home value of $575,800.
